Y'know, my first impression was, "That poster looks awful." But actually, that just means it fits the rest of what I've seen of this show. So good on them for accurately representing their product.

I have zero interest in this show whatsoever and I think it'll be lackluster like 98% of network TV, but I do hope it gets young girls excited about super heroes and gives them someone to relate to.

The show isn't as bad as you'd think. The trailer had like all the cringeworthy scenes back to back.

Her left arm and hand looks like it was pasted over from something else

Does this compete with Gotham? If so after having watched both this shows pilot and all of Gotham, I will be watching this show instead of Gotham.

The biggest thing that struck me in this poster is that she has her ears pierced. Does that mean her skin isn't invincible, or did they use a kryptonite needle? Strange choice to me.

She could have pierced them before she left Krypton

Let's see how long this show lasts. They really have to promote this show better.

I'll give the show two seasons before cancellation.

I have no interest in this show and won't watch it, but that is a damn good poster.

"a new hero will rise"

odd, that tagline doesn't beat you over the head with the fact that she's a girl

Well put. I can only add that seeing a post for a terrible show can only make a man "meh" so many times.

I am just happy that CBS and CW are not owned by the same company (one is Time Warner, the other is Viacom) so there is significantly less chance of this terrible show infecting Flash and Arrow, at least those shows are good.

Well the Constantine show which was for NBC and only lasted one season (most likely due to a contract negotiation), I stopped watching after the third episode when they decided to jammy in a spunky/sarcastic female sidekick to Constantine. No thank you, when I think Constantine I think lone-wolf detective handling both the supernatural and the unnatural the world has to offer.

As for this show, the heavy-handed feminist dialog aside I feel they haven't put the effort into characters that shows like Flash and Arrow have. The first super villain they show, supposedly The Persuader , looks nothing close to his original look; they gave him an odd set of ridges to his head and claim he is an alien with the phrase "on my planet, women kneel to men" but he is wearing normal clothes...why? He stands out like a sore-thumb, why not just have him in combat armor?

I give this show at best, one season and that would only be because of contracts.

The problem is, drastically changing any character or series effects the people who would be legitimately interested in it, the fans, long time fans of comics (both women and men) want a character they are used to, minor updates are fine but anything else is usually seen as wrong, hence why Constantine failed so miserably and yet Flash and Arrow are still going strong.

After watching Agent Carter, the leaked pilot of this show made me cringe. However I think the poster is good.

Nice of them to use photoshop as much as possible. Doesn't it look like they added the "S" in later? Something just doesn't look right.

Yeah it looks oddly stretched and slightly off center. Also, her costume is odd, the weird sleeve leading to her hand and the fact that they're making this character who comes across so bluntly feminist yeah they kept her in a skirt.

In the Flash they showed that high speed cameras could capture a stable image of him, if a modern camera can catch an image of the fastest man alive, you know some perv is going to be able to do the same for upskirt shots of Supergirl

@drellassassin: i bet your the same kind of internet joker who complains about everything comic related on tv ant nitpicks everything because it doesn't meet your crazy image of how things "should be" in your head, but loves agents of shield.

Agents of SHIELD is boring, I barely made it through the first season. The sets were always so clearly CGI, no real effort was put into anything and randomly adding some female character who just happens to be hacking computers where SHIELD is, lazy/coincidental writing and a terrible character

This is an underwhelming poster to say the least, but it's bright, i give it that.

Honestly this show looks so meh i might just keep watching Gotham for the hilariously bad factor.

I'll have to wait and see how this show turns out. I have too many shows to watch on my plate, so I'll skip this one for now.
